As a Thousand Trails Elite member we used the Encore Ready Camp Go to get the low rate. We had site 306 and during night 2 we lost power due to low voltage. This reported to mgmt but no repairs during our 5 day stay. Fortunately the site behind was unoccupied so we used that power box. All sites are dirt. Mostly fairly level. Premium sites have 50 amp. Only a handful of sites are satellite friendly and those appeared to be occupied by work campers. Over the TV reception was ok. Park cable was basic plus ESPN and CNN. Family friendly park and packed on weekend. Quiet during mid week. Shopping close by and paved bike paths to a lot of attractions. Staff excellent. Well stocked store and plenty of planned activities. Nice pool but not warm enough for me. Major issue was nuicance bears(s) who raid dumpsters daily. They will come right through your campsite while people are around. Disposal company does not provided bear proof dumpsters. Bears roam around town and popular bike paths. Error on the side of caution and carry bear spray. We camped at Tahoe Valley RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Tahoe doesn't lack for things to do. Lits of hikingvand biking, water craft and historical venues, most for little or no charge.

Very expensive park for what you get. Premium sites are required for larger rigs, and many of those don't have 50 amp service. Also, for big rigs road access is tight, we had to exit the wrong way because of cars parked too close to the road. Satellite is tough due to trees, and cable system is old with limited channels and fuzzy reception. They have a pool, basketball courts, and a playground. During summer they have several events during the week. This means lots of families, some without any parental supervision (basketball games during quiet hours). We camped at Tahoe Valley RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

close to the Y and bike trails.

We reserved a deluxe site for $56.00. Stayed thur,fri,sat. Site went to $75.00 for the weekend. Site is huge but dirt. It worked ok but I felt it was very over priced.

Park is huge with lots of activities for kids. Nice spot for day trips. We camped at Tahoe Valley RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Day trips to Reno, lake activities. Make a couple hours to walk around the don't all mall area. Lot's to see and do. Very pet friendly. Ate at a pizza place outside and they encouraged bringing the dog. Even brought her water.

Wonderful stay at this Encore park "added on" to our Thousand Trails Zone Pass membership as a bonus option. It was our first long stay (more than a few nights) at a campground since we bought our RV. Although they were busy in the lead up to 4th July, we were allocated a nice, spacious site. Staff very friendly and helpful. Because it was peak time and sites were limited, we ended up in the area where they don't offer cable but as we don't watch TV anyway this didn't matter. Walking the campground was lovely, only concern was internet/cellular coverage. We use our own WIFI (rarely CGs) as we work fulltime and need reliability/bandwith. AT&T phone coverage was average at best. My AT&T phone was pretty much inoperable over the holiday weekend as the population of Tahoe swelled considerably. I could not even send a text or post from my phone, but this was throughout Tahoe, not just the campground. We have a Verizon MIFI hotspot 4G LTE and Wilson Sleek 4G booster and still internet was frustratingly slow... better in the mornings, but virtually non-existent after lunch, presumably as more people get online/use towers. Fire rings not at site - you have to rent them from the office for $5 per night to rent - they are very popular so if you must have one, get in early to avoid disappointment!

All that said, Tahoe Valley RV Resort is a wonderful campground, nice facilities and recommend. We camped at Tahoe Valley RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Showed up without a reservation and was told since we wanted to use Passport America that we'd have to call to make our reservation. Unfortunately it was a weekend and no one answered so the campground made the reservation for me. Roads are paved but sites are dirt covered with pine needles (which they were clearing off). We had a full hookup back-in with a BBQ grill (some sites had grills, some fire rings and other fire boxes). Park felt spacious as no one was there, but we could tell it's very crowded when full. Pool wasn't open for use, activity tent was being raised, nothing going on yet, but we were still charged the $4 daily "resort fee". Price reflects Passport rate plus the resort fee. We camped at Tahoe Valley RV Resort in a Truck Camper.

We stayed here for three nights to check out the South Lake Tahoe area. Very convenient location. Away from the main Highway, but could still hear a little bit of road noise.

Very bicycle friendly area. We rode our bikes into town, and around the Marina.

Not crowded at all, and we had our pick of spots. Unable to get DTV from our Winegard Traveler due to trees though. Staff was very courteous and park was clean.

Would stay here again. We camped at Tahoe Valley RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice, quiet, campground carved out from the surrounding woods. The staff was very friendly and helpful with directions and suggestions about things to do in the area. However, many sites are small (almost awning to awning). They have some 50 amp sites but most are 30. Our site was 30 amp and the voltage was extremely low even if I had nothing running, worse if using any appliance. Luckily the weather was mostly cool and breezy enough not to require the AC. Wi-Fi was terrible. We stayed 7 days and it was down approx. 70 to 80 % of the time and when it was up it had the speed of the old dial up process. The Wi-Fi is provided by an outside company, so I think it is time for them to find another service provider. We would probably not return to this campground because of the electrical voltage/Wi-Fi issues. We camped at Tahoe Valley RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Hardly what I would call a resort. The restrooms are basic and unclean with cobwebs in toilet stalls and not cleaned in the four days we stayed here. The Wi-Fi was nonexistent with plenty of excuses blaming connection company. The sites were uneven and we were made to move when we extended from 2 - 4 days. We paid for the site they advised would be the only one we would fit in (45 ft) a day in advance but found they gave it to another person the night before we had to move. When we advised them of this, they gave no apologies and abruptly told us just because we paid for the site it is not guaranteed - funny as we had receipt for that site. We found another site and moved. That night the police attended the neighbouring caravan at 12.30 AM. Tried to buy stock at office but the staff do not know how to use he computer system and gave up with long line behind me as I was embarrassed. Would not recommend this park unless you are not using restrooms and happy to camp in trees which stop your awning opening. We camped at Tahoe Valley RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Nice sized sites wind through the forest. Loop configuration so you don't get that parking lot feeling. Didn't give a 9 or 10 since the water heater for our bathroom was down for the first 5 days of our stay. I understand it has been down for over a month.

We love the rustic feel of this park, and even though thick with tall, mature pine trees we managed to find a spot with a view of the southern sky for our satellite dish. They also provide cable TV at most sites. Our site was pretty level. Very friendly staff. Not far from the "Y" and retail stores, restaurants, etc. We stayed in Section "E" in site 426. Would stay here again. We camped at Tahoe Valley RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Resort? Not even close. This is an older campground - and not kept up very well. Arrived around 6pm and no one was in the office - a note posted on the door told people to pick a spot and check in in the morning. Only had 30amp service -- water spigot handle broke when trying to turn on the water. Could not get Tailgater to pick up signal due to tall pines. Didn't have any interest in using other facilities at all. Would not return again. We camped at Tahoe Valley RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Just love the smell of pine needles warming in the California sun. The ambience made me feel like a kid at camp. The grounds are huge. In November I could unleash my Lab and roam through the trees. Raley's was .1 mile away, wonderful. Only had electricity, in winter mode. Couldn't get satellite to peek through the canopy. We camped at Tahoe Valley RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We found this campground to be one of our favorites. The management and staff were very friendly and helpful. It is located in the beautiful South Lake Tahoe forest before you get to the Y intersection. Because it’s in the forest, it is difficult to position your RV between the trees and you’re on dirt, not a pad. Once you’re positioned correctly, I found the sites to have lots of room. It is close to the small Lake Tahoe airport so you get some aircraft noise during the day. If your site is in the areas with tents (sections A & E), the bathrooms and showers were very busy especially in the mornings, however in the RV areas (sections G & F) they weren’t too busy. While we were there, they finished fixing the pool so it will be open again in 2 weeks. The playground is great for kids. On Friday nights they show a movie and for a small cost on Saturday and Sunday mornings they have a pancake breakfast available. During the week there are various activities including a karaoke night. We enjoyed our camping experience here because of the room between sites, the forest experience and the activities offered. Our price reflects a Good Sam discount and a discount for the pool being closed for repairs. We camped at Tahoe Valley RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Spent three weeks here and had a great time. Verizon cell coverage a tad weak, but with booster would work well. Wi-Fi was very spotty at times and slow. Swimming pool was closed upon our arrival due to remodel.....disappointing! All utilities worked well and it was a very peaceful stay. We will return. Our rate was Thousand Trails Zone Pass rate.

First of all, DO NOT camp here over the 4th of July! Secondly, expect hordes of people and noise after quiet hours. This facility mixes tent sites with RV sites, which really made for a bad experience for us. We stayed there four nights -- mainly because no refunds are issued, despite the reason. We made a reservation in January for a specific site; however, upon check-in our site was given to someone else. There were many complaints from others that were overheard in the office. No security in the resort after midnight. Their 'rules' aren't enforced, i.e., number of persons allowed in one site (up to twenty-five were counted on two separate adjoining sites next to the first one we were assigned). After much frustration and lack of two nights sleep, we were reluctantly assigned another site that was way on the other side of the park and it was much quieter there. My advice is to make your reservations for the Lake Tahoe area very early, and certainly not here! We camped at Tahoe Valley RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.
